I’m posting NYC Marathon results in honor of my friend Chris, a champion runner who quit runningto take a year off from his studies to travel the world as a champion gamer.
A champion is always a champion.
My friends are all champions.
Marilson Gomes dos Santos of Brazil became the first South American to win the New York City Marathon while Latvia’s Jelena Prokopcuka retained her women’s title with a commanding performance on Sunday.
The men’s wheelchair race was won by Australian Kurt Fearnley, who set a course record of one hour, 29 minutes and 23 seconds. American Amanda McCrory won the women’s wheelchair event with a time of one hour, 54 minutes and 17 seconds.
